Tattoo artist Ady Harrison launches The Laughing Buddha studio in Skipton
10:00am Sunday 13th October 2013 in News
Tattoo artist Ady Harrison has transformed the studio he has taken over in Water Street, Skipton, where he works with piercer Rachael Reeves.
Ady has called his new enterprise The Laughing Buddha, apt because he respects the philosophy of Buddhism and likes the look of the sitting buddha figures, several of which decorate his studio.
He has altered the layout from the previous studio, separating the reception area from the tattoo parlour.
“In the old place, people would be able to see clients being tattooed. It wasn’t appropriate especially if it was a female,” he said.
“I now have a reception area and a counter with a door behind leading into the studio which gives much more privacy. I’m trying to make it more female friendly,” said Ady.
This is not his first venture into the business – he ran a studio in Keighley for several years.
